Oil drain plug location, 2008 GMC Sierra 1500, 5.3L V8

Maybe I'm going blind but I didn't see an oil drain plug. Where is it located or does removing the oil filter drain the crankcase?
Thanks

    I've got the same problem. I just went to see where it was (so I can change the oil in the morning).. and I don't see a drain plug anywhere. I'm sure it's right in front of me!

SOURCE: 2000 gmc sierra 1500 5.3 v8. a/c heater control problem

your heat/cool and vent selection options are controlled by engine vacuum through small clear tubes attached to the rear of your climate control interface. Other vehicles have small steel pull wires that operate the desired changes. You might try removing the trim and any fasteners affiliated with the interface/console. GENTLY pull outward and look to see if any of these tubes are pulled off or cut/damaged. Did anyone recently install a new stereo in the vehicle? If so, the vacuum tubing and or pull wires that change your outlets could have been damaged when the stereo unit was pushed into place. Hope this helps

SOURCE: in-the-tank fuel pump r&r

Here are instructions for replacment with a diagram of the fuel pump components my only suggestion would be instead of draining the tank and dropping the fuel tank if you unbolt the box and using a jack and and some wood lift the fuel tank side of the box this will give you access to the tank and fuel pump/ sending unit. It will save you time and the hastle of replacing the tank straps which are prone to snapping at the threads when trying to remove the nuts.If these brake you will have to replace them.

Sounds like an oil pressure problem. The clacking sound is most likely the lifters are collapsing due to loss of oil pressure. You may have a failing oil pump.

How do I change the oil in a 1996 eldorado?


If you have more than 100,000 miles, go for the High Mileage oil. If has the additives you need. I suggest you buy an oil filter tool while at the store to make sure you get the right size. Jack the front of your eldo on the passenger side or drive the car up on ramps. Make sure it is secure. Open the hood and remove the oil filler cap. Crawl under the car and take your 14MM or 15mm socket and ratchet, your new oil filter and filter tool with you. Remove the oil drain plug located on the rear of the oil pan. Make sure you catch the oil in a drain pan to be disposed of properly. The oil filter is located underneath on the front of the engine. After the oil has drained completely from the oil pan, replace the drain plug. Make sure it is tight but be careful not to over tighten. Remove the oil filter. Hint: take a plastic bag you used to bring the supplies home to help capture the old filter and the oil that is prone to spill. Dip a finger in the old oil and lubicate the rubber o-ring attached to the top of the NEW oil filter. This helps the filter to seat and to be tightened properly. Hand Tighten the new filter in place and wipe up any spills. Remove the old oil, filter, and tools and exit to the top side. Using a funnel, pour five quarts of oil into the oil openning. Remove and wipe the end of the dip stick and reinsert into the dipstick tube. Remove the dipstick and read the level. It should be just under a quart low. Replace the oil cap and the dipstick. Lower the vehicle to it's normal position. If you had the car on ramps, you'll have to start the engine to get it down. At any rate once the car is lowered, start the engine and check for leaks underneath.If you have leaks, you'll need to tighten or repair the cause of the leak. If there are no leaks, shut off the engine and remove the dipstick to re-check the oil level. You will probably need to add the sixth quart to get the crankcase full. DO NOT OVER FILL.

Is there an oil drain plug on a 2000 Buick LeSabre, and if so, where is it located? I see the oil filter, but no drain plug anywhere. I was wondering if you just remove the filter and let the oil drain...


You do not say what size eng you have but the drain plug will be on the low part (deep part of oil pan which houses the oil pump) of the oil pan either on the bottom or some times along the side or back. It is definitely not drained through the oil filter. Let me know if you find it. Thanks.

What are the step by step instructions to change my oil in my 2008 Chevy Malibu LTZ?


Find the oil drain plug, remove, drain the oil into a pan, reinstall the drain plug a tighten, locate the oil filter and remove, check mounting surface to make sure the old gasket didn't stick. Coat the new filter gasket with oil and install hand tight. Refill the oil, make sure that you do not overfill. Start enigne for about a minute, shut off and double check the level, and that the filter and drain plug do not leak.
Some engines can be difficult, to identify the location of the drain plug and filter. There are thousands of configurations out there, If you are not familiar or can not locate the plug and filter, take the vehicle to a shop for service.

HOW TO CHANGE OIL ON A 2002 HYUNDAI SANTA FE. IM 19 YRS OLD AND WOULD LIKE TO HELP MY GIRLFRIEND AND CHANGE IT FOR HER. A DETAILED DRAWING POINTING OUT THE OIL CAP AND THE DRAINAGE AND FILTER FROM...


Lift your Hyundai Santa Fe using a jack and then place the car on jack stands. If you don't have jack stands, drive the car onto a set of wheel ramps.
Pop the hood and remove the dipstick and oil filler cap. The dipstick is near the front engine compartment with the oil filler nearby.
Gather an oil drip pan, a 17-mm wrench, oil filter wrench, cleaning cloths and a new oil filter. Slide under your Santa Fe.

Change the Oil
  • Locate the oil filter and oil drain plug underneath the car. The drain plug is on the bottom of the oil pan, and the filter is to the side of the oil pan.
  • Remove the oil drain plug using the 17mm wrench. Pull the plug out quickly and let the oil drain for 10 to 15 minutes. Check the gaskets and threads for damage. Replace these components, if necessary.
  • Take off the oil filter using an oil filter wrench. Dump the old oil into the oil drip pan and put on the new oil filter. Tighten the oil filter by hand, and then replace the oil drain plug using the wrench. Clean off the excess oil.
  • Go under the hood and add oil. Turn on the engine and check the oil pressure gauge to make sure it rises. Let your Santa Fe run for a minute.
  • Lower your Hyundai Santa Fe and turn off the engine. Take an oil reading on the dipstick. If the oil level isn't at full, add a bit more oil.

Where is the oil filter located?


The engine oil filter is located just right of center if standing in front of the car. By removing the LARGE Black cap with the 36mm nut you will expose the filter element, make sure to do this before draining the oil from the drain plug in the pan. Otherwise the filter will still hold oil until loosened a bit. A typical oil change should go like this.
1. Engine Hot, not running, Loosen filter housing, don't remove yet.
2. Drain Oil, Replace plug.
3. Remove and Replace filter and O-Rings
4. Add oil.

Cannot locate oil drain plug on 2004 Saturn Vue


It is probably a bit different on the 4-cyl engines than the V6 engines. I'll assume you have the V6 for the moment since those seemed to be more popular.

On the 3.5L V6, the drain plug is behind the passenger side wheel well and I believe takes a 17mm socket/wrench to remove.
